The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,662 swing high to $1,357 low is also near the $1,500 zone. A clear move above the $1,500 level could start a decent increase. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise towards the $1,550 resistance zone.

More Losses in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,480 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,400 zone.

A clear move below the $1,400 support might spark another decline. In this case, ether price may perhaps revisit the $1,350 support. Any more losses might even push the price to the $1,300 support or even $1,250 in the near term.
